I'm just wondering why the neon that I bought from Dan didn't have an exhaust manifold gasket. :|

I don't have exhaust manifold gasket on my SOHC and haven't used an intake manifold gasket for a while on my 2.4's, $8 everytime I took the manifold off? Screw that.

I hope you are kidding Tyler, you really need a headgasket.

Sure, show me what I told him that is the reason it's taking so long. And don't get me started on bad advice you've given other people from the Google Institute of Fixing Cars Online that had absolutely nothing to do with the problem they had.

Half the shit you listed won't cause the symptoms he had. One cylinder misfiring WILL NOT be caused by bad fuel pump (affects all cylinders), vac leak (on speed density system AKA uses a MAP sensor, the PCM sees all the air and compensates with fuel, it'll just rev up), external oil leaks (can't really see oil leaks in the headgasket getting into cylinders derr) won't cause a single cylinder to misfire. You were just throwing out random stuff to check and half of it would have had him chasing his tail.

Then you "proved" your list by going into Google and searching for "misfire" and producing a list that was for a car with a distributor. Good work retard.
